that is one killer Buick, I love these types of builds because it takes when hanging out with the peeps that had there bad *** low riders with the low lows. And do you get those pics? Love the reflection... great job

neil thanks for you comment,

 put some water on concrete it needs to be about 2-3mm deep, place the model then take pics at ground level, move the camera around the car until you see the full clear reflection of model in the water.once you find good reflective position try just moving the car instead of camera.hope that makes sense and helps 

 

thankyou Earl,

 what do you find unusual,its good that you say this cause thats what i try do with my builds do something different from the usually built and seen
